Quickest way to introduce and get someone hook on fountain pens? Take them to a pen show, and the biggest one to boot too! 😅

Hello! My first encounter was at the 2018 DC pen show where I was introduced to many beautiful pens! From then on, I was hooked! One year later, I have my own collection of inks and fountain pens. Lol. And I'm still trying to learn all about it! Love this forum, so decided to join and say hello!

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa. 


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Hello and welcome from Down Under.
Cheers, Cris.
Words flowing from the soul and conveyed to paper, require the touch of a fountain pens soft carress.Distinct and individual like a lovers touch.
